The 2017 Route

From 8.30 am onwards, the historic vehicle parade will wend its way through the suburbs, the city, the foothills and all the way to the Adelaide Hills township of Birdwood.

There will be plenty of opportunities for spectators along the way. The cavalcade will be led by the Concours d’Elegance vehicles, and will travel up the Anzac Highway boulevard and parade two-by-two through the very centre of Adelaide through Victoria Square / Tarndanyanga.

Exiting the City on Wakefield Road past Victoria Park raceway the vehicles turn North onto Fullarton Road and head to the Hills via Lower North East Road. The twisty climb up Anstey Hill to Houghton is always spectacular, but be early as one-way traffic will be in place from around 8.30 am.

Enjoy the vehicles as they pass through Inglewood, Chain of Ponds and Gumeracha before arriving at the National Motor Museum in Birdwood for the judging and festivities.
